"By proclamation of the President and the Governors of the individual States, the last Thursday of November is observed as a day of thanksgiving for the prosperity and happiness of the year.
Thanksgiving services are held in churches of all denominations, and pastors recount the national blessings and exhort to faithful citizenship.
We must not fail to state a hearty dinner of roast-turkey and cranberry sauce, etc., is necessary to all those who would properly celebrate the day."
The footnoteMaven will be spending the Thanksgiving Holiday with her family and will return December 1.
A Very Happy Thanksgiving To You All!
